Milwaukee County Zoo camping night returns: ‘Snooze at the Zoo’


“Snooze at the Zoo” camping event at the Milwaukee County Zoo

The Zoological Society of Milwaukee on Wednesday, June 15 announced that “Snooze at the Zoo” will return this year after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19.

The event is the one time a year that the public can camp inside the Milwaukee County Zoo. Campers can set up near the bears, seals, elk and caribou – and may get some peacock visitors near their tents.

Snooze at the Zoo raises money for the nonprofit Zoological Society and is held on three nights: Thursday, Aug. 11; Friday, Aug. 12; or Saturday, Aug. 13. Admission is $55 for adults and $35 for children.

For those who don’t like to camp but still enjoy the zoo, there is the option to “Snooze for the Zoo.” Guests can buy a “Snooze bag” filled with their t-shirt(s), activity books, sidewalk chalk, snacks and more.

Snooze bags cost $20 and must be ordered by July 22; they will be available for pickup in August.

Zoo Pass holders get a discount on both Snooze at the Zoo and on Snooze bags. Additional details can be found on the Zoological Society of Milwaukee website.
